What the heck is a Folkmoot?May 4, 2018
Recently I've been getting in to meal prepping, but more importantly, seeking ways to eat healthy with the least amount of effort possible while getting the most amount of sleep. I'm not usually hungry for breakfast until about 10am so getting up early to make breakfast even if it's just pouring cereal aint my cup of tea. I saw "overnight oats" sweeping the fitness community by a storm and wondered if it was another trendy thing like acai berries, but in fact, I do really like this recipe now that I've fined tuned it, and it does fill me up. These will stay good for 4-5 days if you wait to chop the apple until the night before you plan to eat it. If you're looking for an easy pre-prepared breakfast that will fill you up, this is for you.
Apple Peanut Butter Overnight Oats - 280 calories
½ cup old fashioned oats (150 cal)
½ cup water
2 tsp chia seeds (50 cal)
1 tbsp PB2 - unsweetened powder peanut butter (23 cal)
pinch of cinnamon
½ chopped apple (40 cal)
1 tsp pure maple syrup (17 cal)
Before bed I like to mix the oats, water, chia seeds, cinnamon and PB2 powder together and then add the apple on top and drizzle the maple syrup over it. Let it sit overnight in the fridge and then it’ll be ready to eat for breakfast. You can add your own flair by adding pecans, different fruits, or seasonings.
Here’s the meal prep containers I use. Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see more low cal recipes!
